    5 hour round trip isn't that bad at all. I'd do it

    I'll definitely be there. And it's only about 20 minutes from where I live.

    Can't go to that one. but Dallas will be having one in April, and I hope to go to that, since it is "at home" and my OS. I've never been to a show, and have no idea what to expect. But, I am saving my money!

    A 5 hr. drive is why they invented audio books. Have fun. Shaw Gardens is beautiful when I am there in Oct. for the art show.
    You can get some great deals at orchid shows. (or at least that's what I tell myself)

    I really envy you guys from te US !! You have so many shows each spectacular. Even if you cannot make it to one, there is always one in your neighbourhood LOL. As for me, I would have surely liked to go, but GEOGRAPHY forbids me LOL. Anyways I will be making a 12 hour round trip to Dresden for the only worthwhile show in Germany in April.
